It's A Small World - SOUS Challenge Diecut Wreath

Hi there!

This week's die cut challenge from Stuck on U Sketches is to use a wreath around your photo. I was pretty excited about this challenge since I've had this idea brewing in head for my Canal Days Parade Float album for a while now.

Papers: Amy Tangerine for American Crafts, unknown cardstock; Stickers: American Crafts, October Afternoon, Echo Park; Embellishments: My Mind's Eye washi tape, Studio Calico wood veneer butterfly, unknown globe and star paperclip, Fiskars tab punch, American Crafts date stamp

I used the Going Places Cricut cartridge and DesignStudio to make this globe with "potty people" surrounding it. Then I backed it with a metallic silver paper. I found the original Amy Tangerine background paper too plain, so I added some distress ink in green, blues, pinks, and orange to the corners and edges to add distressing. I then added some small embellishments to mimic Project Life. And while I liked the page, the minute I added those Amy Tangerine Thicker letters, the page just came to life (and the song was now stuck in my head!!) 

And now for something exciting! Stuck on U Sketches will be celebrating their 100th sketch on February 1st with a blog hop! Be sure to stop by the blog to start at the beginning of the hop. There will be a tonne of inspiration from the very talented group and did I mention prizes? 

Thanks for looking!
